    thanks guys, the main reason I did it was because of the people who said they had a little surface rust after a while, so I thought I would just nip that in the bud early with a powder coat, and white just made sense to match the truck. As far as keeping them clean, from what I've seen on pictures on here, you can't really see them once there installed, so I'm not to worried about that.

    Thanks again

    go grab a thing of toyota touch up paint in any color, I did mine color matched, and just used the brush on it. just go slow and put some painters tape around the area so you dont spill.

    I used a pin striping brush and some black metallic paint. Then I cleared over them again. I just blast em at the car wash and they come clean. Thank you, Im sure yours will look just as awesome! post us some pics when you get them installed. GL

    So im totally confused. Looking to do the maxtrac spindles in the front, 3' allpro leafs in the back, and would I require new shocks?
    eventually going to be running 33's on a 17inch wheel.

    Sorry, im new here.

    You're good in the front, but you'll need aftermarket extended length shocks to accommodate the added lift in the rear.

    Along with shocks you will also need longer ubolts and extended brake lines for the rear......allpro can sell u everything you need

    It seems as if I am 153 pages too late but I love my mantras spindles. I'm running them with 5100's in the front and icon vs 2.0 resi with deavers in the rear. Just waiting and saving to go camburg, icon, deaver long travel. But as for now they seem to hold up well. TacoShresdan jumped his truck the other day and all is well.... I would've been there had I not got separated from the group...

    I think your confused a little. The rear 5100's are non adjustable, only the fronts are.

    Check out this link, it has the 5100 rears compatible for different lift heights.
    http://downsouthmotorsports.com/i-5...lstein-5100-series-shocks-2005-2013-pair.html

    Rear lift is obtained via blocks (not the greatest way), or leaf springs/aal.

    Gonna install my spindles along with eibach 1.6 springs and billy 5100s upfront. My offset is 4.00 but im running two inch spacers upfront (like the handling with 2 inch spacers ) so my question is am I going to be able to keep my spacers or have to take them off ? Thanks

    The maxtrac's automaticly ad 1.25 per side, thats just how there built to clear the lower control arm.I have 4.5 backspaced wheels with maxtrac's, i instaled 1.25 spacers in the back to have front / back equal track width due to the maxtrac's making your track width 1.25 wider on each side, so if you wanted to run the spacers in the front after the spindles are in you will be fine its just gonna be hella wide :cool:
